Robin Hood – The most immoral human symbol – Excerpt from Atlas Shrugged (Ayn Rand)

I freakishly love Atlas Shrugged. This mammoth of a book from the Objectivist Ayn Rand.

He doesn’t love you – Excerpt from Robber Bride (Margaret Atwood)

In ihrem dunklen Schoß kannten wir das Gesicht unserer Mutter nicht, und aus dem Ge fängnis ihres Fleisches hatten wir in das unaussprechliche und unsagbare GefängnisContinue reading “Schau heimwärts, Engel – THOMAS WOLFE”

Once in your life you can find someone who can turn your world around

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals thatContinue reading “Once in your life you can find someone who can turn your world around”
